Aspyr Launches GameAgent Digital Download Store
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 68 comments

Aspyr Media has launched GameAgent, its digital download store. The store debuts with two Mac titles available for download and purchase: Call of Duty 4: Modern Combat and the SAT prep game futureU.

Users of the store are allowed to download their purchases once to a single machine and deauthorize and install it on other machines two more times. For a $4.99 per game fee users can purchase a two year Extended Download Service which allows owners to make multiple downloads of previously purchased game titles.

Can I switch to a new machine and still have my games?
Yes, but only if you have purchased the Extended Download Service (EDS). EDS essentially allows you to download your purchase again for up to two (2) years, in the event your computer crashes or the downloaded file becomes damaged or corrupt. It can be thought of as an insurance policy in case anything goes wrong with your computer or the downloaded product. When you have downloadable items in your order, you will see a link to add EDS to your order on the shopping cart page or the checkout page. Upon payment of the specified fee, Digital River, Inc. ("DR") agrees to provide you (the "End User") a service that enables the End User to make multiple downloads of digital computer software products (a "Product" or "Products") purchased in a single order (an "Order") and downloaded from this Web site (the "Site") for a period of two (2) years after the date the End User purchases the Product (the "Service").
To purchase EDS for download products in a completed order, you must look up your order and complete an additional purchase.
You are also allowed to activate your game up to 3 times with a single serial number.

How will handle piracy issues?
Each game that you download is, by default, locked to your computer. A game can only be played on the particular computer where it has been authorized.
